City home was a very cute restaurant, don't let the outside fool you. I would recommend going around 5 as we were able to walk in and get seated immediately before the rush. My family and I got there around 4:55 and were seated immediately in the main in dining area (our other options were the patio and bar) for... More

Last night wasn't the first time we've eaten at City House. But it will probably be the last. Starting with the service. A bit slow, but decent attentiveness. Pretty average all in all - we had to wait a bit for, well pretty much everything (ordering, glass refills, the bill, etc.) So lets start with the menu. BIt smaller selection... More

Big City arrivals on Sunday are often slammed by poor choices for dining. Not this time in Nashville, as I was sent by a local to City House, Turns out Sunday nights are fun nights for the Chef & apparently a menu gets created based on what's in the house. the diner this Sunday night was the beneficiary. The informed... More

the selection of bourbons & whiskeys are great for a Kentucky girl! haven't found anything I don't like there. have been multiple times with friends, tend to share so we can try more of the Chef's creations. the beef tongue & white chicken wings have been my favorite so far. can't wait to go back

Our family recently celebrated a birthday dinner at City House followed by a quick walk to the ballpark in Nashville. City House is a trendy off the beaten path treasure with a friendly staff and amazing food. The Grits al forno was a culinary treat and the Belly Ham pizza was a delight. The restaurant is also a short, safe... More

City House is one of the more popular restaurants in Nashville, situated in the trendy Germantown neighborhood. As I just said, the restaurant is very popular, it's chef just won a James Beard award so I have to write something great...right? Not necessarily. We dined there this week and I found the food to be fine, but unremarkable. We were... More

How can you have such simple concepts in food taste so great when you eat it? This place is fantastic. Stripped down ingredients put together in a way that create perfection. Well done Chef Tandy!

I just love sitting at the cocktail bar watching the cocktail preparation and deciding what to have for dinner. Cocktails are always beautiful and dinner is always over the top.

We went to City House from a recommendation of someone that lives here in Nashville. Let me just say, we are are so glad we went. We sat at the Bar that faces the kitchen and were completely entertained by watching the "well oiled machine" that they have going, these guys are amazing. We had the Scrapple, Pizza with ham...

Great tapas and lots of little dishes to be shared by all. The ham belly pizza was excellent! Don't request porch seating. I don't like to be hot while eating! We made reservations but had to add 1 to the reservation so was forced to take the porch. Desserts were so good!
